    I have 8 Barred Rock that starred laying in September they didn't slow down through the winter. But a few days ago one laid an egg about the size of a big marble... I thought it may only be the yolk or just the white but I cracked it last night... inside was a perfect tiny egg and it was a tiny double yolk.... what???????

    Chickens sometimes just lay eggs that aren't quite normal, it happens occasionally with adult hens, but more so with young pullets :)

    Don't think I've seen a tiny egg with double yolks.
